Rosa by Nikki Giovanni

She had not sought this moment but she was ready for it. When the policeman bent down to ask Auntie, are you going to move? all the strength of all the people through all those many years joined in her. She said, No. An inspiring account of an event that shaped American history Fifty years after her refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus, Mrs. Rosa Parks is still one of the most important figures in the American civil rights movement. This picture- book tribute to Mrs. Parks is a celebration of her courageous action and the events that followed. Award-winning poet, writer, and activist Nikki Giovanni s evocative text combines with Bryan Collier s striking cut-paper images to retell the story of this historic event from a wholly unique and original perspective.
